Goblin Smithy Picture

A Goblin Smithy’s skill at metallurgy surpasses that of even the humans. Many of the superior weapons that beastmen wield are crafted by these gifted Goblins.

Some/all of the information in this article has been culled from various FFXI guides, and translated by Elmer the Pointy.

These hit hard

As a level 47 WAR, with 192 DEF, these still hit hard. 10-30 damage per regular swing, and 40-60 critical. Lots of HP and high DEF.. these things are very nasty.. double attack isnt so nice either..

Why is this gob so powerful? I mean, it's a WARRIOR that uses a SWORD! Hmmm....imagine if SE decided to give it a Great Axe. Maybe the sword is a blessing. And it might be a pain right in the @$$, but at least it's sight aggro. Sound aggro is what I can't deal with. Damn bats.
Body piece = :(

After extensive ***-kicking of Smithys, having fought 150+, they dropped the chainmail armor in the 35-39 level regions only, and never dropped the body piece. not one. i got about four or five of the other pieces each which, for 10+ hours of play is a frustrating drop rate. From my experiences, no mob drops craftable body pieces of arour, ever. Or am i just unlucky...

Not ALL Goblin Smithys drop Chain armor, but the ones in Middle Delkfutt's Tower do. :P

"One Day"
# Oct 28 2004 at 9:24 PM Rating: Default
well, i've reached that "one day" of these gobs being too weak to be worthwhile ^^ i gotta say though, it's a lot more fun following them watching them kill people than it is to kill them XD unless i know said people, in which case /goodbye smithy

roflmfao yeah all goblins have little tiny goblines in there armor having sex with them ^^ lol!

I've heard that they drop in ordelles for sure. Also something else i once saw a guy use Guillotine on one of these Bastards did 943 damage and the thing didn't die. Like isn't 900+ HP on a lvl 30-39 mob a bit excessive?
RE: Drop
# Oct 25 2004 at 8:02 PM Rating: Decent
ya gobs have a lot of HP thats why its not wise to fight one at ANY level when its DC or above. of course taking a DC on at any level above 20 is almost certain deaths. Heck easy prey come close to killing me some times with my lvl 45 DRK

Heh, found this one out the hard way today when I was killing some time in the morning. I shoulda run back to Kazham, but no.... I had to be a tough girl... and lost 500xp to boot.

chainmail drop
# Aug 24 2004 at 9:34 AM Rating: Decent
i wanted to start farming the Chainmail armor set for easy gil, and i was wondering if the chainmail only drops off the smithys in yuhtunga or can i get the chainmail from goblins smithys in maze of shakrami,Rolanberry(if any), Ordelles cave and the tower in qufim.. please respond as quickly as you can and thank you in advance for any help given :)

To give you a fast answer I have only seen the drops from 35 level Smithy's and up. If you look inside one of the walk-thru books it gives you the level varations of each area "and in the areas that you see them vary between 35 and 39" is what I have noticed from personal experiance the drop comes from. Even in the jungle if you get a lower level Smithy (Lower 35) it will not drop but usally the ones you run into in a party that are IT will. I have seen them dropped in the Yuhtunga Jungle, Sauromugue Champaign, and one other I just do not remember where. I hope that helps, Just something fast that I have seen.

So here i am walking back to kazham from Yhoater (just got lvl 33 SAM, i zone to Yuhtunga and one aggros me, it checks out DC and im like "Yes finaly some revenge" Well we both down to 1/3 hp when im thinking of 2hr, when he suicides thank god. Lived with 54 hp
Morale of this story: run to kazham, get a huge train, and come back and watch all the lvl 25s die :D Becuz DC means EM i guess >_<

Killing smithies for armor has been my passion recently... And while the bastards in the jungle are super stingy, the lower level ones in the dungeons like Ordell's and Shakrami are easy *and* generous!

# Jul 25 2004 at 8:32 PM Rating: Decent
Just wanted to know when can a Drk/War solo the smithies in Ordelles/Maze, cuz they are less powerful than the ones that we all came to know and love in the jungles. I heard the ones in the caves/maze is 31-34. Now I'm a level 36 Drk/18 War and I think it would be foolish for me to solo one now, would it?

My LS has been leveling in the Jungles the past week or 2. Started at 25 in Yhuntunga and went over to Yhoater when we hit 27. We have been getting a lv a night (only played together for like 3 hours a night or so) TOnight we were at 28 and we took Smithys with relative ease. With a good party Smithys can be wiped out easily.

We fought like 4 or 5 of them throught the night and the only drop worth noting (that I can remember) was a suit of Gob Mail...
I love to kill em.

Yes thse Goblins are death incarnate.........BUT!
When you finally hit level 28-32 in the Second Jungle near Kazham you realy enjoy killing them that much more. At least I did :)

In Fact I will always kill a gob or Beastman anytime i get the chance just to say.... Remember me 5 levels ago??? "Now Who is laughing"... hahah (Square is always laughing.)

But for the drop I think I may be heading out to get me some of these to kill for some armor.... If it actually drops.
wiped out my whole pt

I hate these things

its awesome how they guard the jungles. Like Dave Chapelle says they are "Evil! Darkness! Mother [email protected]$$ers!"

They remind me of PREDATOR and wat's up with his constant bone-er?
Evil ; ;
